    That's alot to pay for a studio who has failed repeatedly past numerous years....
    This must mostly be to add their entire back catalog of good games into the MS GamePass subscription service....

    Microsoft has some major cash lying around.

    Must be all the nanobots in the vaccine turning everyone into mindless robots.

    This could turn out well. There is always an emphasis on COULD.

    Activision is a garbage company, hopefully Microsoft keeps the brand and dumps the rest.
